“Romance Is A Bonus Book” Achieves Highest Viewership Ratings With Finale
“Romance is a Bonus Book” has ended on a high note.
The final episode of the drama, which aired on March 17, achieved average viewership ratings of 6.7 percent, peaking at 7.2 percent. The episode’s ratings were a personal best and topped its time slot for all cable and public broadcasting networks.
During the episode, all of writer Kang Byung Joon’s (Lee Ho Jae) secrets were revealed. Thanks to Cha Eun Ho (Lee Jong Suk), Ji Seo Joon (Wi Ha Joon) discovered the many ways his father attempted to remember his son despite his Alzheimer’s. He forgave his father and was able to be by his side in his last moments.
Kang Dan Yi (Lee Na Young) returned to the publishing company where she prepared for the “10 person” project with Oh Ji Yool (Park Gyu Young). Their painstakingly-prepared first book was received poorly by the founding members as it was a book that did not suit the trend and would not sell well.
After much deliberation, the publishing company decided to publish it, deciding that they should publish books with value and make up for sales with other books. The publishing company also decided to use a blind recruitment system where they would judge based on skills, a real indication of the change Kang Dan Yi had brought about.
Kang Dan Yi and Cha Eun Ho’s romance came to a happy ending as they became each other’s “one and only book,” sealing their story with a sweet kiss.
